Hmmm, interesting... I was planning on winning. I guess we have a slight conflict here, eh?! jk My bike doesn't even move right now :-)


for those of you thinking about painting your engine... try some Por-15. I've used almost all their products at this point for various things, everything from engine paint (iron blocks), to aluminum, to clearcoats, to under carriage paint, etc. Their stuff RULES! It's not quite as tough as a good powder coating, but for paint it is top notch. And for things that get hot, like the engine, it will hold up better than powder coating :-) You can apply it with a brush or spray it on. Even when using a brush, it doesn't tend to leave streaks like you would think. A bunch of coats sprayed on is best though. Anywho, just thought I'd mention it.

Re: Powder coating everything

thanks for the links. Pretty cool...... something to think about. Am am imagining the entire thing black, from block to screws. I think it would be pretty Bad-A$$.

Re: Powder coating everything

I would be carefull powder coating the entire engine black. I don't think the powder coating will readily release heat the way engine paint will, which is pretty critical to an aircooled Monster. When I put the 900 motor in my bike I repainted the cases, jugs, and heads. I used Hardley-Davidson engine paint that was recommend to me by a friend. It worked extremely well. (although I almost want to hang myself for having a H-D product on my bike) Another thing to take into consideration about anodizing stuff black.. is it will fade eventually and turn a red-brown color.

Re: Powder coating everything

if it can take engine heat, i don't think brake caliper heat would be a problem. you could powdercoat the calipers but i'd rather not purposely subject a critical brake component to 400 degrees F.
